The 34th Annual Lieberman Co.’s Vending Food & Equipment Show occurred May 3, at Lieberman Co. headquarters office in Bloomington, Minn.
Twenty-three manufacturers and suppliers exhibited the latest vending equipment, snack items and beverage offerings. An informational seminar on cashless payment systems was conducted by Crane Streamware's Laurin Miller. An Apple iPad Mini, Durabuilt tool kit, Sony digital camera, vendor gift cards and more were given away as door prizes to attendees.
Lieberman Co. also hosted a special breakfast meeting prior to the show at the nearby Holiday Inn. Dave Bender, Dave Severin and Laurin Miller of Crane; Jeff Beyer of AMS and Steve Meyer of Vendo provided training for the Minnesota and Wisconsin blind vendors.
"It was remarkably well orchestrated. They packed so much information into such a short period of time," said Dan Sippl, president of Randolph-Sheppard Vendors of America in a prepared statement. "A special thanks to Lieberman Companies for hosting the first ever joint Minnesota and Wisconsin blind vendors training session."
Approximately 50 vendors from Minnesota and Wisconsin learned about new technology and software for vending equipment to improve customer service in the ever-changing industry.
